, crunch time for the presidential candidates as they head into this week's debate. running a tight race, our new poll shows president obama running a two-point lead over mitt romney. amid likely voters, ahead of wednesday night's face-off. the president now in nevada preparing for the debate. mitt romney rehearsing in massachusetts. both campaigns are downplaying expectations. >>> and a deadly day in afghanistan. three american troops killed this morning in a suicide bombing just one day after a very grim milestone there. now more than 2,000 u.s. troops have been killed in the war. >>> and a daring rescue caught on camera in texas. you can see this suv there burst into flames after the driver lost control and crashed. but then watch the driver of a passing car stops, rinking his own life. pulling that driver out on to the parking lot. and great news today, the man okay this morning. >>> and u.s. agriculture experts say the concerns about a widespread bacon shortage in coming months are pure -- hogwash. the american farm bureau federation now says that pork supplies will just decrease on
that this was a preplanned attack and yet the obama administration, the white house, the president, all of the individuals involved, spent the course of the next week or so denying that. what's going on here? is this incompetence? is it confusion, or, is it a deliberate, intentional cover-up? >> i think it is deliberate to downplay the threats because clearly the narrative that the obama campaign has been trying to push that usama bin laden is dead and al qaeda is crushed and we know that is not true. like a balloon, if you crush the balloon and just looking at the front of it looks like al qaeda may be dead but you missed the fact that it is popping out in all these other areas. gregg: what white house press secretary jay carney and u.n. ambassador susan rice were telling the american people, not to mention the folks on capitol hill, was simply untrue. they were doing that for more than a week as we mentioned. now the latest offering up an explanation is general james clapper, the director of national intelligence. and here's his explanation and or excuse depending upon your point of view. we'll put it o
, every week they've had dozens of staff on the ground in new hampshire for obama for months and months, got a real head start on canvassing, phone calling and motivating that democratic base that had been sagging a year ago. that is almost up to the same level of intensity of republican support for mitt romney and that's what makes this race so close and i think it will stay close all the way to november 6th. gregg: kevin, great to see you, thanks so much for your incites. jenna: you talk about the ground game and voter turn out, what about absentee ballots, what about legislate the troops vote while serving overseas. we'll tell you next what the pentagon is doing to increase voter participation by our military men and women, that is ahead. plus a rare spider. looks creepy. gregg: albino spied jeer that spider was discovered a long a highway and because it was discovered construction on a highway project worth millions of dollars was stopped. we'll tell you why next. [ male announcer ] in a world where breakfast has become boring and steless... only one man can save the day. kellogg's
presidential in that group. we'll see how he does next to president obama which i think is a little bit different. >> yeah. >> that ohio poll is interesting because the cbs one we had last week had it at ten points. now we have another one showing it at nine points. if you start to look at the map, if he doesn't take iowa, if it gets away from him, it becomes difficult to put a puzzle together to win. >> by the way, there has been this narrative that there is the grand conspiracy and that the polls are skewed. this is what walter mondale said in 1984. this is what moveon.org said in 2004, that all the polls were skewed against john kerry and moveon.org said you just wait. and now you're hearing it frantically on the other side, which ironically, again, they are putting fox news in the grand conspiracy. >> what about the conference call today that we have to plan and organize? >> exactly. my point is here we've got a couple of local polls that are showing this, and more importantly, and you guys talk to the romney people all the time. i certainly talk to them all the time. i can tell you
smart. ♪ . >> three months after supreme court justice moved to the right and passed obama care. pete williams has some details. >> reporter: larry, this is shaping up to be a court term dominated by civil rights beginning with a case that will be argued next week on affirmative action, colleges nationwide use it believing that a more racially diverse campus provides a better education. the court gave a green light to that practice seven years ago, but since then has become more skeptical. sandra day o'connor who has since left the court. the court will almost certainly hear a challenge to the voting rights act. the section that says states have to get federal permission before they make any changes to their elections if those states have a history of discrimination. the states say the map that's used to determine how they need to get that clearance is out of date and three years ago the court agreed with that. and almost certainly it will take up the challenge to the defense of marriage act. that's the act signed by president clint preside president clinton that says that -- >> many
, in these last weeks to get across the notion that reducing tax rates and improving corporate tax competitiveness, that, those are things that can help the economy. i don't see anything in the obama campaign that will help the economy. he has a debate, they have a debate on concerns wednesday. do you think that he should begin the debate by focusing on his tax plan? >> wiser political people than i will have to make that call but i would certainly think it would be an opportunity to explain to the public that cutting taxes is a way of encouraging people to invest, to expand, hire and that's really what the economy needs. david: finally, the federal reserve board, you have been critical of the federal reserve board and its actions. some people say ben bernanke says, while there is no inflation there is not necessarily an economic cost to doing all of the bond buying they have been doing, the money printing they have been doing. is there a cost and if so, what is it? >> i think there is a longer term risk. i think right now it is doing very little good. lowering interest rates at a time when mortga
higher, s&p 500 will open up higher as well. we've got a busy week ahead on the first day of october and the fourth quarter, first day of the new supreme court term and the first debate between president obama and gop challenger mitt romney, that's set for wednesday and wall street looking ahead to the september employment report, that's due out on friday morning. the international air transport association raised its industry profit forecast, expecting the airlines to make $4.1 billion, up from an earlier forecast of $3 billion but considerably less than last year's $8.4 billion figure. >>> general motors is recalling almost 41,000 cars sold in warm weather states, the recall is due to a plastic part that could crack and cause a fuel leak, the chevy cobalt and equinox and pontiac g5 and torrant suv sold through 2007-2009. >>> we'll go back to ross in a second but we are indicated higher here because of what's happening there, and i don't know if there's no riots, maybe that's it or it could be what we already talked about. >> the ryder cup victory? >> there were no french guys on th
't think anybody is doing anything deliberate, but i do think the one number that should concern the obama forces is the fact that he is -- if rasmussen is correct, that far below 50% because historically the undecideds in the last weeks, indeed sometimes it's the last few days of an election, the undecided us usually shift against the incumbent simply because the incumbent is the one they know the most about, and therefore the incumbent is the one that has the edge in having people make up their minds one way or the other. i know in my own first race, i was well behind my opponent who was at 48%. in the last ten days, i said, look, after all the money he's spent if he's only at 48%, that means 52% of people want somebody else, and it turned out i won. he got 48 1/2. connell: president is 48 in the rasmussen overall, he's up 2. and also up in the gallup tracking poll. >> i would say i think romney has had a rough few weeks here and i think it is pretty clear that the polls are moving in the direction of the president in ohio and florida, pennsylvania, and so on, iowa. but this is not -- th
obama will get snippy. >> well, i don't think, barack obama is a very controlled political type. he knows what to do when the pressure is on. we've seen in the last few weeks. i would say this. i started the whole career at 30 something years plus ago in political debate. i would look for what we call a spring board. and that is to take the things they're talking about all are in the past. if i remember mitt romney, i would move this into the future, the impact of the legislation we've seen and what impact it will have on the future in the next four years versus what he offers in the next four years. i haven't heard enough of that. and if you've seen romney come out quickly with answers, there are one, two, three, enumerated that sounds like real ideas and proposals, she'll appear to be a lot more of a together candidate than we've seen in the past. if he comes out the way he's been generally speaking trying to get obama upset, obama's not going to bite for it. he needs to be really concise, enumerate and one zinger, not a bunch of them. >> thanks so much. >> thank you so much, caro
